Course Details

Study Modes

  • Classroom Based Learning – Contact Adapt Education for dates and locations. This is a 10 week course (2 days per week contact + 4 hrs per week self-paced). The first 8 weeks consists of:
    • Theory Component – all resources and assessment tasks can be received online or correspondence (hard copy). Some reading and theory assessment is required to be completed at home in between workshops.
    • Practical Component – Our hands on workshops ensure that you receive expert instruction, guidance and opportunities to practice your building and construction skills in a safe environment. Assessment is conducted during workshops. Where possible, practical tasks are real live jobs just like those you’ll complete in the workforce.
  • Practical Placement – The final 2 weeks of the course will see you placed with a local construction employer to gain on the job experience. Treat your placement as a job interview as employers are always looking for new hard working staff. Note: placement is not guaranteed, but is dependent on availability of placements and student performance. Students who are not placed will continue to attend the designated training venue for the final 2 weeks.
